How to Draw a Vampire
1. Start with a triangle
Start your vampire drawing in light pencil with an upside down triangle as a guideline.
2. Add a half circle to the bottom
Draw an overlapping half circle at the bottom of the upside down triangle.
3. Add waves to the half circle
Add some wavy scallop shapes to the bottom of the half circle for the vampire’s cape.
4. Add an x in the middle
Draw a rounded X shape in the middle of the triangle and half circle as a guideline for the cape details. Also erase the bottom line of the half circle so you only have the wave line.
5. Add half circles to the side of the triangle
Add two ear-like shapes to the side of the triangle. These are actually part of the cape and not the ears.
6. Add a circle to the X
Add a small circle to the middle of the X you previously drew for a cape detail.
7. Outline the cape
Go back with a pen or marker over the pencil drawing and outline where the cape is.
8. Draw a face outline
Draw the outline of the vampire’s face within the triangle. It is basically a rounded heart with two pointy ears on either side.
9. Reoutline the face
Draw over the face shape with a thicker marker or pen and erase any unnecessary lines.
10. Add hair and pants
Add some legs and shoes under the vampire’s shirt and add a few lines for hair, using the triangle as a guideline.
